About the MiTo

The Alfa Romeo MiTo was launched in 2008 as the company's first supermini model.

It was most likely the smallest production car the Italian company had ever made.

Underneath the little MiTo, you can find the same GM/Fiat Small platform that is also used under the:

As well as several other small cars and vans put out by General Motors and Fiat.

Originally the MiTo was called the "Junior" during development, taking the name from a small car the company produced during the 1970s.

Alfa Romeo ran a competition that allowed the public to choose the name for the model and the winner chose the name MiTo.

Many of the engines offered in the car were smaller and much more sensible when compared to the rest of the company's range.

At the top of the range was a low-pressure turbocharged gasoline engine with up to 168bhp available, although most sold were considerably less powerful than this one.

As Alfa Romeo was known for its rich sporty and luxurious heritage they implemented many features that were unique in this class of automobile.

Start-stop technology was added to the ignition to help the MiTo reduce its fuel consumption, an important factor for those shopping for a smaller car.

Setting the car apart from the competition was also the LED headlights that gave a crisp view to the driver at night.

The Alfa DNA Switch was a feature not seen elsewhere - which involved a toggle switch near the gearstick that adjusted various elements of the car.

By setting the switch to "Dynamic" mode the electronic differential would adjust on the front wheels to allow for sharper turning.

Alongside the diff settings the brakes, steering, suspension and gearbox could all adapt to the DNA settings that could be one of three different options.

Production numbers of the MiTo peaked in 2009 at 65,000 and dropped quickly in the following years.

By 2012 Alfa Romeo sold 25,000 models and then for the next 6 years sales reduced to 8,000 by 2018, marking the final production year.

The Italian automaker didn't replace the line with another similar model and instead focused on their new crossover SUV the Stelvio.
